Imagine Upstate held a kite flying event at the Kroc Center soccer field on Sunday. Although this part of the country is not known for sustained wind, there was a variable wind on the field that day. And with a bit of running, even a damaged kite can get off the ground!

Design adjustment to delta winged kite. Note the message “If Found call…”!
Both kites in the photo above are riding the same string. The top kite goes up first. The bottom kite rides up the same string on rollers. When it makes contact, a mechanism releases the “message”, which can be candy, toys or paper airplanes. The bottom kite then unfurls itself and comes back down the string and can be reloaded and sent up again.
